Real Housewives of Potomac star Gizelle Bryant has just shed an impressive 12 pounds in recent months, and she’s not shy about sharing the results of her hard work with fans.
In early 2021, Bryant opened up about having gained weight amid the COVID-19 pandemic, expressing her hope that she could lose the weight in a bid to look and feel more confident.
“I just want to look as sexy as I possibly can all the time!” Bryant told Fox News in February. “But during the quarantine, I did gain like 10 to 15 pounds and I just want to fine-tune that.”
In June, however, the reality star opened up about how she’d managed to lose the weight, revealing her new body with her followers on Instagram.
“I am feeling so confident in a bikini thanks to @Nutrisystem! A bikini, y’all! ?” said the star, who’s an ambassador for the weight loss brand. “Nutrisystem fits into my life. Even when on vacation, I can still maintain portion control and make smart choices. If I can do it, you can do it!”

In the past, Bryant has been open about her struggle to keep her portion sizes in check, something she’s credited Nutrisystem’s meals with helping her accomplish. Bryant has said that she particularly likes that she can indulge her appetite for desserts on the program without derailing her weight loss efforts.
“You know I have a sweet tooth!” Bryant said in an interview with Nutrisystem. “I love my cookies and cakes and pies. Nutrisystem has the best versions which will help you with your sweet tooth.”
In addition to incorporating Nutrisystem meals into her routine, Bryant revealed that she’s ramped up her daily exercise in a bid to get leaner and more toned, as well.
“This year I wanted to incorporate something new in my workout regimen so I started swimming. I totally freaking love it!” she told Fox News, explaining that she typically swims for 45 minutes three times a week. “I’m so mad I didn’t incorporate this a long time ago. It helps me feel complete from head to toe. My body is a little more crisper, if that makes sense.”
